Lemon juice

Rose petals

Clove oil

Neem leaves

A spray bottle 

How to:

In about three cups of water, put a bunch of mint leaves and bring it to a boil. Once it is lukewarm, add some rose petals into it and brew on medium flame for 10 minutes. You can take two medium sized roses for this. Strain the water and let it cool completely. Transfer the water into a spray bottle and add half a tablespoon of lemon juice and a few drops of clove oil in it. Close the cap tightly and shake the bottle to get all the ingredients nicely mixed up. Use it whenever you feel oily, grimy and want to feel fresh.

Lemon juice has vitamin C which is excellent control excess oil. Neem and rose have antibacterial properties that help keep acne at bay and the sweet fragrance of rose makes you feel refreshed. Clove oil, on the other hand, controls oil, prevents acne and provides hydration.
